Pro Grip 714 Dual Sport Grips
not that great
I commute 80+ miles a day on my cbr1000rr. Lately, my hands have been feeling like they've been overworked from all the vibration. I read the great reviews of these gel grip, and I thought they were worth a try. Overall, I think they are okay. They probably absorb vibration but not that much better than the stock Honda grips. Luckily, these grips are cheap, and so no real loss.

a standard for me
a low profile cushion grip, helps subside the vibrations without having a large diameter, works well with underlying grip heaters, have been using these on my street bikes for 15 years.

These grips are almost perfect. They were easy to install, they look good (better than the photos), and they feel good. They are gel and somewhat thicker than my stock Ninja 1000 grips. They fit the handlebars perfectly. They do a fairly good job of minimizing vibration. You really can't go wrong with these at $10.
I can only compare these to my stock grips and the Kuryakn 6344 grips for $62+. The Kiryakn were horrible in every way - hard metal and fairly hard rubber, glued on with super glue! They were very uncomfortable, conveyed vibration worse than the stocks, and it took me over two hours to remove them, including the glued-on rubber and the glue stopping up the throttle movement. Don't buy the Kuryakn grips!

as sold on Randakk's, but much cheaper
Got these for my GL1000; Randakk recommends them. Much cheaper than he sells them, and afaik exactly the same thing (he's out anyhow).
Nice grips, for an extra pimp touch run some safety wire around the groves. Looks sweet, makes them slip proof without using any hairspray, and keeps them easy to remove.

I have these on my '82 Honda CM450C. They cut down the vibrations a lot. They are very grippy and very comfortable. I would strongly recommend these grips!

My Go-To Grip For All Bikes...
These are THE best grips I have found. The grip material itself is a squishy rubber that helps insulate your hands from bar vibration and gives you a good grip. The shape is slightly thicker in the middle and fills your palms. They're also just slightly thicker than stock grips, which for me is more comfortable.
The only negative (and a SLIGHT one at that) is that they can be a bit difficult to get a straight cut on with the pattern in the grip.
Oh yeah, and measure twice, cut once! There's nothing worse than having to order a second set because you cut the clutch side too short...

This pair of grips was recommended by RevZilla after I called asking what I could do to lessen bar vibration. Turns out that the RevZilla rep owned a Suzuki V-Strom 1000 just like mine. He told me that he installed these grips on his bikes and performed well. So, I told his advice and I am glad that I did. 4 days and over 700 miles later they worked like a charm.

I needed some new grips and went with these on a whim. Didn't want to pay extra shipping to buy the ones I really wanted that Revzilla didn't carry. I must say I really like these grips. Very soft and grippy. A slight "barrel" shape conforms to my palms well. They do help with vibrations as well. For the money they work great, had about 400 miles on them so far. Seems like some of the finish might be coming off but I'm not too worried.
